nVent unveils smart row, rack-level precision liquid cooling systems for data centers

Jan. 3, 2019
nVent SCHROFF has introduced two smart precision liquid cooling platforms for managing high heat loads and critical cooling requirements of data center computing, server and storage racks.

nVent SCHROFF has introduced two smart precision liquid cooling platforms for managing high heat loads and critical cooling requirements of data center computing, server and storage racks.

The SCHROFF InRow Cooler delivers row level precision cooling performance up to 55kW when connected with chilled water inlet temperature of 14°C/57.2°F. The entire system is housed within a separate 300mm enclosure and includes an integrated smart controller and active fans. The fans move the warm exhaust air from the rack mounted equipment through an air to water heat exchanger and transfers the heat to a water circuit before recirculating chilled air to the front of the equipment. The SCHROFF InRow Cooler can provide significant improvement in cooling efficiency versus Computer Room Air Conditioner (CRAC) based system layouts when deployed in optimal operating conditions.

The SCHROFF Rear Door Chilled Water Heat Exchangerdelivers high-density rack level cooling performance up to 40kW per rack when connected with chilled water inlet temperature of 20°C / 68°F. Higher cooling performance up to 55kW per rack is possible with reduced inlet temperature and optimized operating conditions. The entire system is available in multiple dimensions and housed in an aesthetically framed perforated door with protective covers to isolate the liquid source and cooling loop from the rack-mounted equipment. The system channels the warm exhaust air generated by existing rack-mounted equipment fans through a large cooling coil surface before re-introduced back to the room. The design separates the cooling device from the rack mount equipment and the rear side of the rack is completely free for cabling and power distribution.

All nVent cooling devices include a smart controller interface to maximize operational efficiency. Optimized local displays provide easy maintenance and Modbus/Ethernet interfaces to allow remote management of the cooling devices. More information is available online at schroff.nvent.com.

Like data center environments, cooling approaches run the gamut
